I have a special request. Would you be so kind as to recommend albums and/or movies to aid in forgetting an especially heinous fuckboy post-breakup? Many thanks in advance.
Getting through my last breakup was greatly aided by the End of Daze EP by the Dum Dum Girls and Red by Taylor Swift . The key to “forgetting” someone is to remind yourself of all the negativity they brought into your world and to look forward to all the awesome stuff in store for you now that that energy is no longer around to hold you back. So, 90s Mary J. Blige, Jagged Little Pill, Blue, both of Adele’s albums, Back To Black, and everything written by Stevie Nicks (and all of Rumours) are all pretty much givens but I’d also recommend:
After all of that, listen to nothing but Trina for at least a week straight. Preferably while working out. It serves the same purpose mindless pop would, but since this guy was so awful you need to retain an extra edge to ward off that type in the future. After that, to get back to a nice balance of reality and hopefulness, listen to More Adventurous by Rilo Kiley.
For movies the big three are First Wives Club, Legally Blonde, and Waiting To Exhale. I’d also add a newer one, Ruby Sparks. Start with that one and then watch the other three.
Hope this helps :)
